    A player in Christian and talk radio stations is buying up popular conservative websites — moves that could make Salem Communications the next big thing in right-wing media.

    I see it more like the spread of a cancer.

    Listeners already have cancer -- newer stations will just ensure they're brain dead long before they die.

    You guys are just jealous because there is no market for LIEberal radio (and for a good reason).

    We don't need to be told how to think.

    You're right, you let the government and unions do it for you.

    Since I don't listen to any talk radio, where does that put my thinking? I wonder if we should start an independent talk station? I guess that's what podcasts are for.

    I couldn't care less about liberal talk radio. There's a reason it doesn't do well. Liberals don't need to be told how to think. Therefore there's no viable market for the product.

    Conservatives on the other hand have to be told how to think. That's why conservative talk radio does so well on an inferior band of radio that everyone else has given up on.

    "Liberals don't need to be told how to think."

    As I said above, that is a true statement. You let the government and unions do it for you.

    What you think is not correct. That's just the beginning of your issues.
